I am assisting my step-mother sell her house in Southville. Will the conveyancer commission the EPC or it is for the owner to coordinate?

After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was left as a compulsory component of moving house. An energy assessment must be commissioned prior to the property being put on the market. This is not something that lawyers ordinarily organise. Where you are instructing a Southville conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their relationships with reputable local energy assessors

My conveyancer has informed me that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Southville?

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Southville off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Skipton. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

My wife and I are buying a ground floor flat in Southville. At the time of instructing our lawyer, we were told they were on all major UK lender panels. The financial adviser contacted us yesterday to say that they don't appear to be on the Bank of Ireland approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we simply choose a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or do we cover the costs for separate representation, with Bank of Ireland appointing their own preferred conveyancing practitioner.

Where you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the solicitor to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the lawyer has to meet. Some banks now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your conveyancer should call Bank of Ireland to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Bank of Ireland's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Southville lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the equation.
